Hogan’s Alley is an essential part of the history and soul of Vancouver. This vibrant, notorious neighbourhood was a magnet for famous entertainers (it’s where Sammy Davis Jr. learned to dance!). But it was also seen by 1960s city planners as an example of urban blight, and became the first few blocks destroyed to make way for a proposed 12-lane freeway. We’ll view the short documentary Secret Vancouver: Return to Hogan’s Alley, followed by discussion with the director, Melinda Friedman, and featured contributor Wayde Compton.
